English concertina, Anglo concertina or Duet concertina we have a great selection at The Music Room of first class new and used concertinas. Whatever your budget we are sure to have a concertina to suit.
Created in the 1830's by Charles Wheatstone, the English Concertina has a distinctive hexagonal or octagonal shape. During the 1850's George Jones incorporated the English Concertina and the German Concertina into the Anglo-German Concertina. Duet Concertinas enables the player to play a melody line in the right hand and an accompaniment in the left hand (similar to that of a standard bass accordion). There have been several systems and key layouts invented, all with a separate way of achieving this.
